My take...quit grandstanding, Sarah. It was a careless remark, made my someone who has probably never been touched personally by the people he offended. If you want to question his judgment for going on a talk show, by all means. But he meant no harm against Special Olympians.

there is a 62% cut in funding for special education. no matter how you spin it, she approved that budget.

this is in addition to the billions of stimulus dollars she recently rejected for education and special education. playing politics was more important to her.

Obama's remark doesn't offend me as politicians often make verbal mistakes. Non issue, imo. We all know that the only true retard is Bush, because he does it, too.

Those who claim that Palin cut special needs funding by 62 percent are looking in the wrong place and misinterpreting what they find there. They point to an apparent drop in the Department of Education and Early Development budget for special schools. But the special schools budget, despite the similar name, isn't the special needs budget. "I don’t even consider the special schools component [part of] our special needs funding," Jeans told FactCheck.org. "The special needs funding is provided through our public school funding formula. The special schools is simply a budget component where we have funding set aside for special projects," such as the Alaska School for the Deaf and the Alaska Military Youth Academy. A different budget component, the Foundation Program, governs special needs programs in the public school system.

And in any case, the decrease in funding for special schools is illusory. Palin moved the Alaska Military Youth Academy's ChalleNGe program, a residential military school program that teaches job and life skills to students under 20, out of the budget line for "special schools" and into its own line. This resulted in an apparent drop of more than $5 million in the special schools budget with no actual decrease in funding for the programs.

Alaska superintendents are already lobbying legislators to reverse Gov. Sarah Palin's decision to reject $172 million for Alaska schools.

Their reactions to Palin's decision have ranged from dismay to panic, superintendents said Thursday.

Much of the stimulus package money for education -- about $74 million -- was designated for poor schools and special-needs kids.
